6-Inch Pizza Oven Wood

Tiny pizza ovens demand tiny wood, and our 6-inch extra split pieces fit the bill. These premium hardwood logs are the ideal size for popular pizza ovens like the Ooni Karu 12, Bertello, Cru 30, Gozney Roccbox and Solo Stove Pi. Each resealable box contains enough wood to cook 20 pizzas with no problem!

8-Inch Smoking Wood

Need to smoke some meat or wood-fire a pizza in a larger portable oven like the Ooni Karu 16? Our 8-inch logs fit great in vertical, offset or horizontal smokers, Solo Stove ovens, wood grills and more. You can order the species of wood you need or mix and match to produce incredibly flavorful wood-fired dishes.
